Signs Of The Savior (41:02)
Referenced Scriptures: Luke 7:1-23
We are to use every opportunity to proclaim Jesus as Savior.
What methods do you use to tell people about Jesus? We often think of giving witness as something that is done through our words as well as our actions.
However, sometimes Christians proclaim the gospel through supernatural evidences of His power. We are wise, therefore, to pray that God might use us in all these opportunities - by word and action, as well as through miracles.
In Luke 7, Christ's followers as well as unbelievers experienced supernatural evidence to confirm that He is indeed the Messiah, the Savior of the world.
As we examine what Scripture tells us concerning who He is, we can cut through faulty expectations to proclaim the true, risen Christ in word, deed and action.
The scriptures below are from the WEB Bible.
1) After he had finished speaking in the hearing of the people, he entered into Capernaum.
2) A certain centurion‘s servant, who was dear to him, was sick and at the point of death.
3) When he heard about Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, asking him to come and save his servant.
4) When they came to Jesus, they begged him earnestly, saying, "He is worthy for you to do this for him,
5) for he loves our nation, and he built our synagogue for us."
6) Jesus went with them. When he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him, "Lord, don‘t trouble yourself, for I am not worthy for you to come under my roof.
7) Therefore I didn‘t even think myself worthy to come to you; but say the word, and my servant will be healed.
8) For I also am a man placed under authority, having under myself soldiers. I tell this one, ‘Go!‘ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come!‘ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,‘ and he does it."
9) When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turned and said to the multitude who followed him, "I tell you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel."
10) Those who were sent, returning to the house, found that the servant who had been sick was well.
11) It happened soon afterwards, that he went to a city called Nain. Many of his disciples went with him, along with a great multitude.
12) Now when he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, one who was dead was carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. Many people of the city were with her.
13) When the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said to her, "Don‘t cry."
14) He came near and touched the coffin, and the bearers stood still. He said, "Young man, I tell you, arise!"
15) He who was dead sat up, and began to speak. He gave him to his mother.
16) Fear took hold on all, and they glorified God, saying, "A great prophet has arisen among us," and, "God has visited his people."
17) This report went out concerning him in the whole of Judea, and in all the surrounding region.
18) The disciples of John told him about all these things.
19) John, calling to himself two of his disciples, sent them to Jesus, saying, "Are you he who comes, or should we look for another?"
20) When the men had come to him, they said, "John the Baptizer has sent us to you, saying, ‘Are you he who comes, or should we look for another?‘"
21) In that hour he cured many of diseases and plagues and evil spirits; and to many who were blind he gave sight.
22) Jesus answered them, "Go and tell John the things which you have seen and heard: that the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them.
23) Blessed is he who is not offended by me."
